Default Geofence proximity

Hey everyone, new and uneducated/inexperienced, I want to be an auto tech, my only real dream, and while I was thinking, I thought why not build a go kart much like a car with all the essential systems, better yet why not for my nephew, in hopes to keep him occupied. Problem: troubled kid who canít leave the cul se sac. Question: Is there a way to implement a sort of proximity device that can kill the engine if he gets too far from home while maintaining a suitable serviceable engine.

Wifi on a raspberry pi with a relay attached to the kart kill switch? Use the network dropping out to trigger the relay activation.
